ABOUT THE PLAYS:
The Book of Esther– by Leanna Brodie
It’s 1981, and everything is about to change. Inside a downtown apartment, two out-and-proud urban queers square off with two evangelical Christian farmers. What could they possibly have in common? Her name is Esther, she is 15 years old, and she has just run away from home…
Oblivion– by Jonathan Brower
Oblivion is set in a world where a vaccine has been created that can eliminate our brain’s capacity for faith and spirituality. After Tim undergoes conversion therapy, this vaccine could be his only way to deal with his mental and emotional well-being. Turmoil ensues when he realizes getting the vaccination puts his relationships, beliefs, and entire life history in jeopardy.
